“Sabotaged” wraps up the Alaskan Courage series with the-ultimately-happy ending the reader expects and a great dose of intrigue and adventure along the way. As a whole, this is a good, clean series that delivers well-developed suspense and romance. Its mildly edgy as far as Christian fiction goes and will keep you turning the pages, though it won’t keep you up at night. The modern, outdoors adventure and the “who-done-it” crime scenes will appeal to older teen or young adult readers and I’d recommend it if you’re shopping around for a young woman in that age group.
This series stands apart from others in the Christian romance genre because of the Alasakan setting and the emphasis on outdoors adventure. You definitely want to read these books in order as there are a lot of characters to keep track of, but that gets easier with each subsequent book because you become more familiar with who’s who (and who’s with who), and because by book three author Dani Pettrey begins to keep the focus on the two main characters who are hooking up (while solving the latest crime) and she relegates the others to the background- which really helps.
“Sabotaged” has a great plot line that keeps you guessing, although the action is a bit stilted at the climax. There’s also a considerable amount of gushy “happily-ever-after” at the end, but since this is the final book in the series that’s understandable. Again, this is an entertaining series- read this book last but if you’re looking for a good series definitely give the Alaskan Courage series a try.
